Trail Run in Coal Creek Park
Washington › Coal Creek Trailhead
Added by Colin Ayers
Scenic views of Coal Creek Falls and a fairly shaded run. Great views make this 6mile run a lot easier.
This run takes you through Coal Creek park and follows the creek along the trail with minimal elevation gain. This trail can also be accessed from the northern end of the park if that's a more convenient drive. For the lower parking lot, park at the Red Town lot (exit 13 off I-90) and cross the street to get to the trailhead.
As you get moving on this six-mile trail, you’ll soon spot an old coal mine shaft and a small waterfall. If you're feeling good, you can make your run longer by linking the Primrose and Forest Drive Trails.
Once you're ready to rest your legs, head to Megan's Coffee Corner to grab and a bite and that much needed coffee.

Great Little Run
I was surprised at what I found on this run. It was great non technical trail with a few longish hills and beautiful scenery. You are immersed in the woods the whole time and can feel quite secluded even though you are not far from roads or people. Trail is very well marked with a few loops that make the out and back not too boring. Trail at the moment has a few really muddy spots so be prepared to get your feet wet and dirty. I will be back to run again.
